Ain Dubai, standing at a staggering height of 210m, is Dubai’s newest, record breaking landmark located on the Bluewaters Island. Showcasing Dubai’s beautiful coastline and Dubai Marina’s outstanding skyline, the gigantic Ferris wheel is set to be an attraction for the many visitors and residence of Dubai and we were honored to be a part of the construction process. With views of famous city landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah, Ain Dubai is on route to be in high demand for residents and visitors of Dubai.

With the client requirements in mind, Microtopping® was the chosen solution for the columns within the Ain Dubai facility. Applying Ideal Work’s Microtopping®, Duphill’s team were able to create an eye catching aesthetic, yet durable finish for the many visitors to appreciate upon arriving to the observation wheel. With a thickness of 3-4mm, the material can be applied to most vertical, horizontal and curved areas. With an array of options, the decision on colour and texture selected for the landmark was made with ease. The flexibility of the material allowed Duphill to achieve a cement-like look with a smooth finish, unique colour and seamless design. The material is also easy to clean and offers advanced UV protection to guarantee the maintenance of its final finish whilst being exposed to the sun throughout the extreme Dubai summers.

Duphill’s team of highly experienced craftsmen applied the Microtopping® to sixteen of the Ain Dubai columns and were truly honoured to have their work on display for the thousands of daily visitors of the attraction. With a team that take pride in every project, the results were guaranteed to meet the requirements for both aesthetic and durability purposes.
